Day 18

Crappy lighting

More crappy lighting
they were about 50 feet up in this huge old oak tree and I was about 50 yards away. Perhaps a faster f-stop or ISO would have been appropriate, also a little haze on the first shot.
100mm F2

Day 17

A photo shoot that didn't go very well. I need to work on my lighting on bright days - any suggestions? The one of Nick on the left had a reflector blocking the light and you can see a huge difference, too bad it was so flimsy and hard to use!
50mm 1.8

Day 14

Olivia Breen Eichberg
Canon 100mm f2.0
(the new daughter of one of my clients. born on January 12th. This was our impromptu photo session. The lighting was not my favorite but I did what I could with it, next time I will be more prepared.)

Day 16

50mm 1.8 with external flash (a little too much)
Nick loves his play dough, such a fun activity.

Day 15

Crazy Alex. He is 3 years old now and a lot of fun. This is a new apron I made for him and he made a little outfit. We love sock hands in our house!

Day 13

The view, technically not mine but right behind me.

41st floor of Bank of America Building. Highest in Tampa (goes to 42 floors).

Day 12

I loved the way these flags hang in front of the buildings. Perhaps better lighting next time as the foreground is just too dark.

Day 11

A plant with some crazy post processing. I don't hate it but I wish you could see the patterns better.

Day 10

The other side of the tracks. I am a total cheater as this is the same day. But lets pretend I am a hard worker and came back the next morning. Such a beautiful sunrise. Too bad I didn't make it to any of the strawberry fields before sunrise.

Day 9

The railroad tracks on my drive into work. Just barely missed the good sunrise but pretty close. I love the way the tracks intersect like two lives overlapping. Can't wait to try this on another day 10 minutes earlier.
